Figure 1-6: Modem Doctor
Connecting to Verizon
The Raven XT uses Verizon as an ISP (Internet Service Provider) to connect you
to the Internet.
Steps of a Connection:
1. When your Raven XT is powered on, it automatically searches for cellular
service using CDMA-based cellular technology.
2. Your Raven XT establishes a PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol or “dial” up
connection) link to the Verizon network (also called registering on the
network) and receives an IP address.
12
20070914
Introduction to the Raven XT
3. When yourRaven XT has received its IP address from Verizon, a connection
to the Internet or the cellular network is also available for computers or other
devices connected directly to the Raven XT.
The Raven XT will perform routing for all internet traffic to and from the computers
or other end devicse.
With the Raven XT in Ethernet Public mode, only one device connected to the
Ethernet port will receive the public IP address which is the one provided by the
cellular network. In Ethernet Private mode, with a hub or switch connected to the
Ethernet port, the Raven XT will provide NAT for a range of computers or other
devices connected to the switch or hub and Internet access to all of them.
Dynamic vs. Static IP Addresses
There are two types of addresses on networks: dynamic and static.
•
Dynamic addresses are assigned on a “need to have” basis. Your Raven XT
might not always receive the same address each time it connects with
Verizon.
•
Static addresses are permanently assigned to a particular account and will
always be used whenever your Raven XT connects to the Internet. The IP
address will not be given to anyone else.
Most ISPs (cellular included) use dynamic IP addresses rather than static IP
addresses since it allows them to reuse a smaller number of IP addresses for a
large number of customers. A dynamic IP address is suitable for many common
Internet uses, such as web browsing, looking up data on another computer
system, or other client functions (such as data only being sent out or only being
received after an initial request).
Tip: If your account with Verizon includes a dynamic IP address and you need a static IP,
please consult your Verizon Representative for more information about changing your
account for static IP support.
If you need to contact your Raven XT, a device connected to the Raven XT, or a
host system using the Raven XT from the Internet, you need to have a known IP
(such as one which is static) or domain name (an IP address which is converted
by a DNS server into a word based name). If you have a dynamic IP address for
your modem, you can use a Dynamic DNS service (such as IP Manager) to
translate your IP address into to a domain name.
Rev 3.0 Jul.11
13
Raven XT for Verizon 1x/EV-DO
Caution: If you want to connect remotely to your Raven XT using TCP/IP, the IP address
given to your modem by Verizon cannot be a private or internal IP address (such as a
special private network) unless you are on the same network or inside that network’s
firewall (such as with frame relay).
EV-DO
CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) is the underlying digital radio network
technology used by many cellular providers across the globe and is prevalent in
North America. To provide backward compatibility and seamless connections in
a wider range of locations, Sierra Wireless EV-DO products your Raven XT will
fall back to 1x when EV-DO is not available.
Sierra Wireless is certified with Verizon, a prominent North American 1x and
EV-DO carrier.
EV-DO revision A is an enhancement on the original revision 0 adding expanded
upload capabilities and a more robust connection overall. In addition to increasing
the downlink speed, revision A also increases the uplink speed. In addition, it is
backwards compatible and automatically connects with existing and broadly
deployed EV-DO Rev. 0 and 1x networks ensuring reliable and pervasive
connectivity.
Security
1x data transmissions are highly secure. Originally developed based upon the
“spread spectrum” pioneered by the US Department of Defense, security in
CDMA technologies is obtained by spreading the digital information contained in
a particular signal of interest over multiple coded paths, over a much greater
bandwidth than the original signal.
Connection Methods
You can connect the Raven XT to a USB or a Ethernet (RJ45) on a computer.
When connected to a USB or Ethernet port, the Raven XT behaves like a network
card.
USB
The Raven XT is equipped with a USB port which increases the methods by
which you can send and receive data. The USB port can be set to work as either
a virtual Ethernet port or a virtual serial port. A driver installation is required to
use the USB port in either mode.
It is recommended that you use a USB 2.0 cable with your Raven XT and connect
directly to your computer for best throughput.

20070914
Introduction to the Raven XT
Virtual Serial Port
The Raven XT supports one virtual serial port over USB. This VSP can be used,
for example, to send AT commands, or to run many serial based applications
such as HyperTerminal®.
Networking
IPSec
The IP protocol that drives the Internet is inherently insecure. Internet Protocol
Security (IPSec), which is a standards-based protocol, secures communications
of IP packets over public networks.
IPSec is a common network layer security control and is used to create a virtual
private network (VPN).
The advantages of the IPSec feature includes:
•
Data Protection: Data Content Confidentiality allows users to protect their
data from any unauthorized view, because the data is encrypted (encryption
algorithms are used).
•
Access Control: Access Control implies a security service that prevents
unauthorized use of a Security Gateway, a network behind a gateway or
bandwidth on that network.
•
Data Origin Authentication: Data Origin Authentication verifies the actual
sender, thus eliminating the possibility of forging the actual sender’s identification by a third-party.
•
Data Integrity: Data Integrity Authentication allows both ends of the communication channel to confirm that the original data sent has been received as
transmitted, without being tampered with in transit. This is achieved by using
authentication algorithms and their outputs.
The IPSec architecture model includes the Sierra Wireless AirLink gateway as a
remote gateway at one end communicating, through a VPN tunnel, with a VPN
gateway at the other end. The remote gateway is connected to a Remote network
and the VPN is connected to the Local network. The communication of data is
secure through the IPSec protocols.
Rev 3.0 Jul.11

Raven XT for Verizon 1x/EV-DO
Figure 1-7: IPSec Architecture
GRE
GRE (Generic Routing Encapsulation) tunnel is used to carry non-IP packets
through an IP Network. Non -IP packets, that are send over the GRE tunnel, need
to be first encapsulated. Hence, ALEOS is used to configure and encapsulate
non-IP packets and transmit over IP through the GRE tunnel.
Applications
Events Reporting
Events Reporting is Sierra Wireless AirLink’s modem’s new software feature
provided via ACEmanager, that allows the users to generate reports from the
events that take place. Event Reporting Protocol is an intuitive embedded
protocol, which automatically formats the messages based on an event trigger.
The messages generated are then reported to the remote server.
Software
The Raven XT modem comes with the following software:
•
AceView, the software for the Raven XT which allows you to monitor your
connections.
•
The driver that forms the interface between the Raven XT and your Windows
operating system when using USB virtual Ethernet or USB virtual serial.
•
The firmware that is stored in non-volatile memory and includes
ACEmanager.
The Raven XT has an embedded radio module, also made by Sierra Wireless,
Inc. There are two firmware programs on the device—one stored on the controller board of the Raven XT and one on the radio module.
The firmware was loaded into the radio module and controller board when the
Raven XT was assembled. As new versions of the software and firmware are
released, they are posted at www.sierrawireless.com.

• Connecting to a
Computer or
Other Device
• Indicator Lights
• Mounting
Note: During installation,
please be sure that the
cables are secure but do
not bear any additional
weight that could loosen
the connector from the
unit.
Your Raven XT should be mounted in a position that allows easy
access for the cables so they are not bent, constricted, in close
proximity to high amperage, or exposed to extreme temperatures.
The LEDs on the front panel should be visible for ease of operational
verification. You should ensure that there is adequate airflow around
the modem but that it is kept free from direct exposure to the
elements, such as sun, rain, dust, etc.
Caution: The Raven XT is in a hardened case and designed for use in
industrial and extreme environments. However, unless you are using cables
expressly designed for such environments, they can fail if exposed to the
same conditions the Raven XT can withstand.
Figure 4-1: Raven XT Connectors
Note: This device is not
intended for use within
close proximity of the
human body. Antenna
installation should provide
for at least a 20 CM
separation from the
operator.
Antennas selected should not exceed a maximum gain of 5 dBi under
standard installation configuration. In more complex installations
(such as those requiring long lengths of cable and/or multiple
connections), it’s imperative that the installer follow maximum dBi
gain guidelines in accordance with the radio communications
regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC),
Industry Canada, or your country’s regulatory body (if used outside
the US).
Your Raven XT will work with most cellular antennas with a SMA
connector. Connect the primary antenna or primary RF cable directly
to the antenna connector on the back of the Raven XT.
Rev 3.0 Jul.11
33
Raven XT for Verizon 1x/EV-DO
Tip: When using a cable to an antenna placed away from the modem, minimize the length
of your cable. All gain from a more advantageous antenna placement can be lost with a
long cable to the modem.
Note: Your Raven XT does not have a second antenna for received
diversity. Received diversity is disabled by default.
Connecting to Power
This I/O port handles external input and output events. An external device can
send digital input to the modem through the digital I/O port.
Figure 4-2: Digital 1/0 Port: Power Connector
Warning: Risk of electric shock: Only use the supply voltages listed in this user guide.
Warning: When using AC to DC adapter the ambient temperature should not exceed
40 0C.
Your Raven XT can be used with either DC or AC with the appropriate power
adapter. DC cables and AC adapters are available as optional accessories in
addition to the one included with your Raven XT.
Note: When using a DC
power source (such as a
solar cell), Sierra Wireless
recommends placing a
fuse (1-2 Amp) on the line
close to the power source
to protect your power
source from possible
surges due to shorts or
other line issues.
The DC power cable positive lead should be connected to the battery or power
source positive terminal. The power cable negative lead should be connected to
the battery or power source negative terminal.
Tip: The DC power cable has a white wire lead in addition to the power positive and
negative. This is for a feature not present in the Raven line modems. In the Raven X, the
white wire lead has no function and can be ignored.
Warning: Explosion Hazard - Do not disconnect equipment unless power has been
switched off or the area is known to be non-hazardous.
